By a stroke of luck and two counts of pure generosity, I managed to come into possession of a [profile] dixiebell12Death Eater mask for Azkatraz.

*squees madly*

It was made for [livejournal.com profile] droxy, but unfortunately, it didn't fit her. :( While I was at her house last weekend, she showed it to me and I tried it on. It was a perfect fit. With Dixie's permission, Droxy passed it on to me. I still can't believe I get to wear it to Az!

*grabs Dixiebell and Droxy by their collars and squeals thankyouthankyouthankyou*

The mask is so beautiful and wonderfully scary! Dixiebell did such an amazing job with it. I can't even believe it. Guh. It's nothing short of brilliant.
Here it is (it's just perfect):

Lj is only showing two pics ATM. BITCH. FUck it that mask didnt fit! But ms. Dix is workong on my old mask frame and Mr. D's as well. So I know mask 2 will fit. Dixie's masks are works of fucking art and she should post pics on deviant art of them. These are worthy of wall hangings and put my own feeble job to shame.

We shall all be awesome deatheaters at AZ. SQUEEEEE and SQUEE for Dix, the amazing mask artist!

Personally I can't wait to see what she does with the hat I sent her. She won't give it to Hayley-LOL.

Dix is amazing! They really are works of art. I agree, she really needs to post them on deviant art (ya hear that dix?).

I can't wait to see the hat either!

*squees*

Thanks again for passing it on...as you said, it'd make a beautiful piece of art to hang on a wall. I would've had a hard time parting with it even if it didn't fit me. :D

What is important about functional art like this, is it provides a certain amount of joy. Visually, it is joy. But it cannot be finctional. I cannot wear it, and sadly, you saw how it fit. The (cheap) mask forms that exist commercially come in two forms, those that fit a heart and triangular feminine face (you and Dix). Those that fit a square face, like me and Mr. D. I have a small nose and small face, but it is square. The nose in teh mask form is small even for me, and the proportions are off. Dix has my old broken mask. But the papaerclay she uses will make it hard as rock and it will not suffer the material fatigue I subject a mask to during a con. These works aof art are very durable. Someday when I retire from this hobby, I will have the mask to remember it all.

I can't wait to play around with the hat but it has to wait awhile.

We are going to look so threatening at AZ. *G* I won't to go right now dammit *G* I can't wait til July ;)

*blushes* I'm just glad you like them ;) I don't know if I'd call them works of art though *G*

Oh damn I'm embarrassed *blushes harder*

LOL-

But it was heartbreaking it would not fit. My old mask frame is shot. But Dix uses paperclay and it turns hard as a rock.

I can't have an open chin design either, shows the double chin and that's not scary.

I've been around, busy with the boys last week of school and dance classes. Boys are now on school hols for 2 1/2 weeks. We went to the beach yesterday. I also have heaps of pregnant bitches here atm, 4 to be precise. I am tired and worn out. I desperately need a holiday. Az can not come soon enough.

Loves you, Sonia :)

Hoorah! Droxy now has a huge fucking nose on her mask and I'm covered in clay ;)

Way to work the mask Babe! It looks awesome on you ;) and scary!

*blushes at all the coments* I'm really surprised they turned out the way they did. I'm thrilled that you like it enough to wear it. Please finish the one you were working on too, I loved it. I thought you did such a wonderful job on it and you should be very proud of it.

hugs,
Dix

I just can't help but to work the mask. LOL. It's just so amazing.

Ooo...can't wait to see Droxy's latest mask!

I am going to keep working on the mask I started. :) I just need to pop over to the crafts store and get more paperclay!

From: [identity profile] dixiebell12.livejournal.com
I'm loading pics of hers now. Just remember it still ruff at the moment and still needs a lot of work. I just need her to take a look before it drys so I don't have to sand that nose off if she hates it.

I've been living at the craft store. I'm on my 8th bag of paperclay (LOL) I need to buy shares it the company (LOL) I'm going to be so disappointed when I'm finished making them. It's just as fun as CS2
